Keeping our Young People Safe

National Child Protection Week 2018

National Child Protection Week was held in early September with important messages for everyone in our communities about keeping children safe.


Scouts Australia supports National Child Protection Week and its important reminder that protecting children is everyone’s business. Whether you are a neighbour, friend, family member or a young person, we all play a part when it comes to keeping children safe.

The safety and wellbeing of the children in our care is our number one concern and priority. As a thriving, modern organisation, we strive to be vigilant in identifying and eradicating child abuse. Our policy is to report allegations of child abuse to police, and other child protection authorities.
